We had a feeling Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar weren’t done expanding their brood!
According to In Touch Weekly, the parents are planning to adopt the 8-year-old son of Michelle’s struggling niece.
Per the report, the boy’s mother, Rachel Hutchins, hasn’t been able to care of her child ever since she gave birth as an unmarried teenager. Rachel also has a long history of problems including breaking and entering charges.
As of now, the religious duo has legal guardianship of the kiddo which they hope to make permanent in court on November 14.
A source said of the situation:
“There’s a strong hope that once that happens they will be able to adopt him.”
Well, considering a few of the pair’s children have left the nest, we guess there’s some free space in the Arkansas compound. Not to mention the family, especially Jessa Duggar, has expressed interest in adoption before.
We’ll keep you posted!
